Happy New Year- eat your cabbage!

Growing up there was a hard and fast rule in our house: you must have cabbage in some form to guarantee happiness and good luck in the new year. Usually in our house this meant sauerkraut and pork. I always try to honor my mother's admonition and we have cabbage prepared in some way--possibly kraut or slaw or whatever. This year I found a dandy dish of sautéed cabbage with diced bacon. Very tasty indeed. Pretty sure my mom would approve. Good luck to you and yours!

1 small head of cabbage, sliced thinly
Salt and pepper
1/4 lb of thick bacon, diced
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup broth
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 sliced scallions
2 T minced fresh dill

In large skillet, brown the diced bacon. Remove to plate. Add cabbage to bacon fat and cook for 5 minutes-add salt and pepper. Add wine, broth, vinegar, and cream- stir well and cover and simmer. When ready to serve garnish with scallions, bacon and dill.
